Missouri to spend $3 million on Memorial Bridge replacement study

Will pay IDOT for part of the study in 2027.

The state of Missouri has set aside just over $3 million to help pay for a study on replacing the Memorial Bridge over the Mississippi River at Quincy. 

The Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission Wednesday approved a five-year Statewide Transportation Improvement Program, or STIP. That covers fiscal years 2024 through 2028. According to the plan, MoDOT plans to pay the Illinois Department of Transportation for the study in 2027. Other projects included in the STIP in Northeast Missouri include replacing the bridge on Missouri 79 in Hannibal over Lyon Street, Warren Barrett Drive, the BNSF railway and Bear Creek, just north Route T. Work on the $11 million project is set to be done in 2024. MoDOT is planning improvements on US 61 in Clark County, including spending $5.5 million next year to raise and re-build the highway from the Iowa State line to east of 136 near Alexandria. MoDOT will also spend over $7 million in 2025 to fix the pavement in US 61 from the Iowa State line to just north of Route B in Lewis County near LaGrange. The work will be done in nine separate sections, and will include southbound and northbound lanes on Route 27 from the Iowa State line to the US 61 interchange. State-wide, the STIP makes available nearly $14 billion of federal and state revenues for all modes of transportation over the next five years. It's the largest program in the state's history.
